I was talking with a friend the other day whose Korea time is coming to an end, and we spent a long time reminiscing about our experiences there. It made me interested in hearing other people's funny stories, weirdest moments, biggest culture shock, etc. I'd love to read them if anyone wants to share.

Some of my experiences have been so odd that people here sometimes claim I am fibbing. To be hones tho, Korea is nowhere near as odd as it was 10+ years ago. I will add some later when not typing on a phone.

Around my second day here and late at night, I was walking about 50 yards behind a dude that I'd always see around the neighborhood, who looked like frankenstein. He trailed off to the right to the right and when I reached that spot I glanced to see this crazy dude pooping on, literally, the front steps of an apartment building. I then had to cross this dude at least once a week until I moved. I've traveled quite a bit though, and Korea's pretty tame. I have much better stories about other countries. Koreans are usually just kind of weirdos who need some greenery in their heads so they stop acting like silly robot borgs all the time.

Too often this is too true.
